Portfolio Positioning as of 12/31/2014

  • United Technologies Co., a diversified industrial firm that produces elevators, climate control systems, and airplane engines, is the portfolio’s largest overweight position, relative to its benchmark, the S&P 900 10-Year Dividend Growth Index, as of December 31, 2014. We believe that investors are underestimating the ability of the firm to capitalize on a recovery in the nonresidential construction and aerospace markets.
  • The portfolio also is overweight, relative to its benchmark, in Lowe’s Companies, Inc., a home improvement retailer. Our view is that better service levels and merchandising likely will lead to improved margins and profit expansion that are not currently reflected in the stock price.
  • Chevron Corp., an integrated energy company, is another overweight position, relative to the benchmark.  We do not believe that investors appreciate how well-positioned the company is to benefit from the North American onshore oil and gas renaissance.
